Thoughts Are Like Seeds

Few people would argue that our thoughts control our actions and that our actions (largely) control our results. If you think about going shopping and decide to follow through on that thought, your body follows suit, and pretty soon you acquire the results of going shopping. It all begins with a thought. But what people often fail to realize is that we have the power to consciously choose our thoughts. Instead of just letting our brains randomly cycle through the same thoughts over and over, we can start choosing to spend time thinking about different things. And if we do that consistently, we’ll shift our actions in new directions and thereby acquire new results.

Thoughts are like seeds. If you want different results in life, you have to figure out which thoughts are capable of growing those results and which aren’t. Then you have to consciously fill your mind with the correct thoughts and weed out the incorrect thoughts.

For example, if you want to start your own business, I can tell you which thoughts are the right seeds and which are the wrong ones. Among the wrong seeds, you’ll find the following thoughts:

  • Starting my own business is very risky. I have a family to support.
  • There’s a good chance I’ll go broke.
  • I don’t have enough money yet.
  • I have no idea how to start my own business.
  • I’ve got a safe, secure job. Why would I want to mess that up?
  • I’m not ready to start my own business just yet. Maybe next year.

Note that I’m not saying that these thoughts are objectively wrong… just that they’re the wrong seeds for the potential result of starting your own business. In other words, the result of starting your own business isn’t going to grow in the soil of the thoughts above. But these are the right seeds if you don’t want to start your own business; these seeds will grow the tree of being a lifelong employee. So chances are that if you harbor thoughts similar to those above, you find yourself an employee right now. Nothing at all wrong with that if it’s what you want. On the other hand, if you’re an employee right now and would like to start your own business, but your predominant thoughts about the idea are similar to those above, then you have a problem. Those mental seeds simply won’t grow a business. If you retain those thoughts, you’ll never run your own business, just as if you plant tomato seeds, you’ll never grow a watermelon.

So what kinds of thoughts are the right seeds for starting your own business? Here are some of them:

  • Sure it’s a risk, but I believe in myself, and whatever obstacles come my way, I’ll overcome them.
  • I’d rather spend my life working hard to build my own business than to build someone else’s. If I’m going to build a business no matter what, it might as well be my own.
  • The freedom of being my own boss is extremely attractive to me. Imagine being able to decide how to spend my time every minute of every day.
  • I can only get so far income-wise as an employee. If I want to hit it rich, I need to go into business for myself.

Now even though thoughts like those above might be the right seeds for starting your own business, that does not mean that planting the right seeds is sufficient to grow the whole plant. Just as plants need water and sunshine, it takes a lot of hard work to build a business. But the right thoughts are the first step. I’m just using the starting of a new business as one example. I could have just as easily used quitting smoking, losing weight, getting married, etc.

The main point I’m trying to make is that if you find yourself in a situation where you want new results in your life (i.e. something other than what you’re currently experiencing), then the first step is to examine your dominant thoughts to see if they’re the right seeds to grow the results you want. The odds are probably better than 95% that if you’re not making progress, then you’re probably thinking the wrong thoughts and need to replace them with new ones. For example, you won’t become a nonsmoker by thinking thoughts like, “Quitting smoking is hard.”

A key concept to understand here is that shifting your thoughts is a conscious and deliberate activity. You don’t just say to yourself, “Ok, I’ll think about starting my own business. Sounds good. Next….” You have to be a lot more proactive than that. You have to set aside an hour or so to be totally alone, sit down with pen and paper, figure out the correct thoughts/seeds you need to be thinking, and then consciously ram those new thoughts into your head, over and over again until they become dominant over the old thoughts. And if you’re trying to make a big shift in your results, then this is something you’ll need to do every single day.

You might find the above exercise really difficult at first. When you start thinking new thoughts, the most common initial reaction is that you’ll feel a great deal of doubt about them. So if you start thinking about running your own business, your initial images probably won’t seem too attractive. Then you find yourself thinking about quitting your job, the negative reaction you’ll get from coworkers, the office politics you have to deal with on a daily basis, and you suddenly realize you’re back to thinking the wrong thoughts again. That’s normal. But use your imagination to push past the doubt and keep working on it. See that new reality working out beautifully, even if you have no idea how it could possibly work in the real world. It’s going to be sloppy in the beginning, but it will get easier over time. After about 2-3 weeks of this, you’ll start to actually believe in those new thoughts. And that’s when you’ll feel the urge to start taking action. But in the beginning, you’ll still be too full of doubt to act. That’s fine — it’s important to reach the point of belief first. So just be patient with yourself, and let your imagination guide you. As Albert Einstein said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge.”

What is Personality?

The Personality is way we think, feel and behave that is what makes all of use different. So what is a good personality. It is combination to that that you like in someone. There are some treats that are universal liked that is what we call a good personality.
As we all know that looks can take you to some level but to truly get success and liked by people we have to have some good personality treats.

 

How To Develop Your Personality

For a long time it was believed that personality is permanent. What that mean is that we are what we are and we cannot change. Because of William James, the famous Harvard psychologist, wrote The Principles of Psychology, in which we said that, personality is “set in plaster” by early adulthood. This view stayed for a long time by as time passed by we have reason to believe that personality is more fluid. So now we control over which traits and characteristics we want to develop or refine.

Having a good personality can help in your social life, in your home, your career and guarantee a happier life in general. Some people have particularly magnetic and charismatic personas, while other people are strong listeners and advice-givers. In cultivating and nourishing an individual personality, it is important to have the ability to build on and develop strengths, while at the same time acknowledging and working to improve on the weak points in your personality. There are ways to build and develop a personality that truly reflects who you would like to be.

Do you often wonder how to improve your personality? If you really want to improve your personality, first of all you need to know why you want to improve ?You can accomplish anything once you know why you want to do it. And how much it matter in your life. Anyway, that’s totally a different topic.

Ways To Develop Your Personality :-

1. Become a Better Listener

Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis was considered one of the most charming women in the world because she cultivated the skill of being an exceptional listener. She was known for the way she would look a person in the eyes, hang on their every word, and make them feel important. There is nothing more appealing than having someone listen to you making you feel like you’re the only person in the world.

2. Read More: Read Something Everyday

The more you read and cultivate new interests, the more interesting you become. In this why you have more share with people and enjoy more interesting company.

3. Take a Genuine Interest In Others:

The more curiosity you have in other people and things, the more you will be able to learn about the world, which can enhance your personality. Learn what makes other people tick by asking a lot of open-ended questions about life goals, hobbies, favorite television shows and movies, sports and other topics of interest. In this way you will have a lot good friends.

4. Have a Goal For Your Life:

Many strong personalities are shaped and molded by big visions and goals that they have for there life. Determine what it is that you want to accomplish most with your time on earth, whether it is to start up a charitable organization or become a successful painter. Setting goals is a major step on the road to developing a more engaging and fascinating personality.

5. Have an Opinion

There is nothing more tiresome than trying to talk to someone who has no opinion on anything. A conversation has nowhere to go if you have nothing to expound on. If, however, you have an uncommon point of view or differing opinion, you are more interesting and stimulating to be with socially (unless you’re a know-it-all, of course). A unique outlook expands everyone’s perspective.

6. Be An Active Listener:

Although most people are happy to discuss themselves but it’s refreshing to encounter a person who is happy to listen with interest. Engage other people sincerely and do your best to make them feel valued and special. The better you make other people feel about themselves, the better they will probably feel about you.

7. Know Your Faults:

To identify and develop what it is good about you, it is important to first admit and acknowledge your setbacks. Having the ability to say that you are not perfect can be endearing because it is so rare — most people try to ignore and push away things that they don’t like about themselves. But you can’t change what you don’t acknowledge. So discover you faults and make them your strong point.

8. Expand Your Mind

Become a more intriguing and well-rounded person by widening your universe. Learn to speak German, travel to Costa Rica to learn surfing, meditate, design your own clothing, take cooking classes; if you are interested in something, pursue it. Avoid excuses such as not having enough time — after all, you only have one life to live.

 

9. Accept And Recognize Your Weak Points

You cannot develop your strengths without knowing your weaknesses. If you keep on living in denial you will never be able to improve your personality. Once you know your weaknesses you can work on them and improve them. So in order to improve your personality first of all you have to accept and recognize your weak points.

10. Don’t Judge People All The Time

People with weak personality traits have this problem — they are constantly judging and evaluating people and they are constantly worried what people think about them and how people react to them. Worrying about others’ reaction is not going to solve your problem. When you stop judging people you can be more relaxed and be yourself by doing that you will be able to live your life more.

11. Learn To Like Others

People with great personalities love the company of other people. Don’t think that since they already have great personalities people flock around them; that’s not the case.
Do something new everyday have fun. First like and accept what you are because if you don’t like what you are now you will be not happy even after the change.

How Do You Find Your Life Purpose ?

Credits: anastaciomartinez.wordpress.com

You can see your life purpose in two ways. Some relate life purpose to what they what to do with there life and there are some who thinks that life purpose in a spiritual scene. The reason why god has send you on this earth.

As we are born unique and gifted with one or many talents so it is right to think that you are sent on this earth to do something. Because of the different gifts we have come with. And life purpose as in sense of what you want from your life.
In both the case you want a answer how to find life purpose there are different way to do that. But the most basic of all, is that when you do something in your life and you feel that it’s right. You have stumbled on your life purpose but the life purpose is not a static concept it’s a dynamic one. The reason for that is you are changing continually you learning and growing and as you are going though it you are developing you life purpose.

Finding What Come Naturally To You

If you really want to find your purpose in life the first thing you have to find is what are things that you are good at what are the things that come to you naturally what are things that appear difficult to most of the person and its like breathing to you. What I ment is it come naturally to you.

When you have make a list of things that are easy for you the next thing that you look for is where you can apply them.

How And Where Can You Apply Those Things

The next step in finding the purpose of your life is to find out where can you apply you unique set of talents and skills. So that you have a clear direction of where you want to go with your life. Because if you don’t know where are you going you will end up in a place where you don’t want to go.

So before hand decide where you want to go in you life so finding the purpose of your life is more important then the next promotion you hopping to get or the new mobile or car you want to buy. So spend more time thinking what you want to do with your life.

 

How Can You Make World a Better Place With It ?

So now you have list of things that you are good at and where you can apply them now the next thing that you want to do is think how can you apply what you have found to make world a better place. For example that you have gift of playing piano so you make music that will swipe people of there feet. The music that will make them forget all there worries all there problems.
It does not matter what are you skills if think hard and long enough you will find the way in which you can apply what you know, to make world a better place.

Why should you do that? Because it will make you feel good about yourself. It will make you feel that your life ment something and you are of some value.

Having this feeling is really important in you life. If you have the feeling that you contributing something to the world it will fulfill your inner most desire of being worth while. Even if somebody know that or don’t know that it will not matter to you.

 

Work

When you have done all the above. You have found your gift and searched ways to apply it in a way that it will make world a better place for you and everybody else. You should start working on it don’t waste any more time thinking.

If you are not so good in that thing do not wait to get better. You should starting working and work everyday. Then find someone that is doing the same thing that you want to do and ask for help. Make commitment to get a little better every day.

Any amount of thinking can’t get you anywhere you have to work on your thoughts. That is the only way that you can achieve any thing in life. So be prepared to work be ready to work. And also its important that you make your work fun. If the work itself is fulfilling then you don’t have to force yourself to complete your each and every single day.

So if you have read the complete thing this mean that you are really serious about finding the purpose of your life. But I want to ask you something that when you are reading did some thing pop it to you mind. Did your inner voice said something to you.

Like ” hey you are good at this or that thing” or ” This are the ways that you can apply this things in this manner” If it did now you have write that thing on paper and start working on it today not tomorrow not on week end but you have to do something right now that is the only way you find the purpose of your life.

Some time this thing will happen when you will find something that you think at that time is purpose of your life and after working some time on that make you realize that its not.
So don’t worry this happen some time all you have to do is do the above process once again and find out. It will take you some trail and error to get there. But the most important thing that you can do is not give up. You will get there and it will worth every minute of work that you have done to get there.

and shows online for all night. Eat delicious food. So what is you perfect day will

be like. We all want more money, a more of this and a more of that. But forget to

really find out what is that really makes us happy.

 

For some it can be simple as sitting at river bay or on beach or looking at traffic

and wondering what this all people after. At mist of going somewhere we forget to

see where we are right now. So I request you set a time aside and really find out

what is your perfect day like.

 

It can be simple it can be outrageous. If more money is really answer to all the

problem then why rich people have so much problems. Yes money is necessary

for living. We can say it is like air you can’t live without it but a lot it don’t make

a lot of difference. So at place of looking for more air first start to enjoy every

breath you take. It will be difficult at first as all around us are living in future

more concerned about what they want that they forget what they have.

 

How to make everyday the perfect day?

 

The three things that you will need to make every day a perfect day are health, money and

relations with good people. You can improve on them on regular basis by taking a small

step very day. You can apply the principle of kaizen which mean a small improvement

everyday.

 

We need good health so that we can enjoy what world have to offer and money to pay for

those things and good people to share it with them. Because we are human we are

programmed to live in society so it’s necessary for you to have human contact.

 

You will be amazed by the progress a small step can in a long time. If you take a simple

step everyday for next 5, 10, 15, 20 years think of the improvement you will make in

this fields.

 

But don’t focus to much energy on anyone aspect of your live it will create a unbalance

in your life make a commitment to improve your self in all this field every signal day for

rest of your life.

To write an 100 article a month you have to do a simple calculation first.

The first thing that you have to calculate is how much time did it take

you to write a article. So for example you layout the time and process

that you take to write the article.

 

The second thing is that you eliminate all the unnecessary steps and

time consuming thing that you do while writing an article. Then make

a simple step by step plan of how you will write a article. Then the

next thing is that you write the article by the use of the method.

 

For example it take you 45 min to finish an article including all the

necessary steps.

So for writing a 100 in 30 day equal around 4 article daily. So the time

needed for you to do this with 15 min break in between 4 hr.

article a month is the passion for writing and a good, simple step-by-step

writing plan.

 

Always remember you can active anything in life if you get the habit of

setting and achieving small daily goals. So best of luck with your writing.

6 SIMPLE TIPS TO SET AND ACHIEVE ANY GOAL

smart goal setting concept
Credits: studentsuccess.unc.edu

 

We all have some goal, dreams or desires that we want to achieve. We work

to fulfill them but more that often we fail to achieve them. What are the main

reason that we are not able to achieve our goals? Why we even after hard

work not able to achieve our goal? What are things that we are doing wrong?

I have found somethings that most of the people are doing wrong so make

certain that you don’t do the same mistakes.

 

 1. Know where you are right now

 

The most important part for achieving a goal is knowing where you are right

now . To get to were you want to go you must know where you are right

now.

 

Take for example that you want to type faster do you know what is your

typing speed right now. This principle can apply to any field you are in what

you want to find out first that where are you write now.

 

2. Where you want go?

 

The next step is finding where you want to go. Take the same example of

typing speed you want a typing speed of 80 WPM ( Words Per Minute).

What is so good about this goal is that its specific and its quantifiable. You

can track your progress that how much you have improved every week or

Month.

 

The next thing that you want to find is this goal achievable. How can you

find if this goal is achievable? Search in google and find out if some one was

able to achieve that goal.

 

As you will find in our example that 80 wpm is average speed of typing for

profession typist. So this is a achievable goal. The next thing is setting

deadline.

3. When are you planning to fulfill your goal?

 

The next thing you want determine is the time and progression as you know

that you can’t go from 20 wpm to 80 wpm in a month( in most of case) so

you set a goal to improve your typing speed 10% every month. So if your

typing speed now is 20 wpm you will set a target to get to 22 wpm at the end

of the month. You will see in most of the cases that you will exceed your set

target but its a good base line.

 

Now the end date for your goal when you want to achieve the speed of 80

wpm. You decided to get to that goal in a year.

 

4. List the reasons that you want to achieve that goal

 

 

This list will help you in time when there is no quantifiable progress even

after putting a lot of work. This phase is called the dip. Sooner or latter you

will face this dip you cant do any thing to get away from it the only thing

that you can do is work through it.

 5. Have a system to track your progress

 

It very important that you have a system in place to track you progress and

adjust your method of achieving your goal so that you can achieve your goal

in shorts possible time.

 

6. Plan in advance what to do next day

 

Have a plan for day in advance what you want to achieve and get done in the

next day so that you have clear and focused mind to concentrate on the task

at hand.
